Don't give up what you want MOST for what you want NOW!

Hi! My name is Vanessa. I'm here because I would like to try taking control of a life that has never really had control before. I want to prove to myself and to my family that I can take care of myself and that I'm capable of being independent. I have a faith in God that He will help me through this journey.

While I'm here, I hope to reach 140 pounds (an appropriate weight for my height) by mid-2016. I'm planning a trip to Japan with a close friend of mine and while I'm saving up ...
Hi! My name is Vanessa. I'm here because I would like to try taking control of a life that has never really had control before. I want to prove to myself and to my family that I can take care of myself and that I'm capable of being independent. I have a faith in God that He will help me through this journey.

While I'm here, I hope to reach 140 pounds (an appropriate weight for my height) by mid-2016. I'm planning a trip to Japan with a close friend of mine and while I'm saving up the money for it, I'd like to trim down and dazzle my friend! We've known each other for some years, but we've never met face to face so it will be really exciting! I will try to post progress pictures along the way if I remember to!

While I know it's hard work to achieve this kind of goal, I am willing to put effort into it, especially when I have a set date and goal that means a lot to me. I seriously have no reason not to achieve my goals.

Ideally, I'd like to be closer to 200 pounds around Christmas in 2015. It would mean I'm right on track. I think it's possible if I put my mind to it. Even with all this drive and reason, please help keep me motivated, as it is a very difficult thing for me.

As someone who has gone through the whole depression thing, I'm well aware how motivation can easily disappear. I have gone through a lot.

All in all, I hope to be the next success story and inspire people on this site and others in my life! Have a great day, everyone, and God bless!

"Beautifly" is a made-up word that I concocted by combining the words 'beautiful' and 'butterfly'. The name Vanessa means butterfly. I want to remind myself that I'm beautiful even when I don't feel I am. Instead of being a beautiful butterfly, I prefer to say I am a BEAUTIFLY.

My lifetime goal is to learn as many languages as I can. My current repertoire of languages include English, Spanish, French, and Japanese.

I'm an aspiring writer and I love writing stories! I like participating in writing contests and hope that one day I can be a published author with tons of stories out there in the hands of many people!

I also love to sing. I'm kind of shy when in front of people, though, but I'm trying to overcome that.

Hi!! I would love a buddy to check in with. I am doing Power 90. I just finished my 4th day. I've got 90 pounds to lose. I can;t do lunges or squats due to life long knee issues.

You've wronged your body, and like losing trust, it takes time and patience to lose the weight and regain the trust. It's not a simple thing but you have to want its forgiveness, you have to want the result. Your body is your child and you cannot give up on your child.

Don't give up hope! Set a short term goal for yourself that you can look forward to...a new dress, a fitness walk...and get your mind on the positive! emoticon

If your mind is saying I CAN'T!
You're getting too close to thinking, " I CAN! "

Keep running forward because that's telling you the light is right there, ahead of you!

Welcome to the Done Girl Team. I hope you find as much support and motivation as I have. The more active you are, the more you'll get out of it.
